Today rum swillers everywhere will be celebrating National Rum Day, but what about those who aren’t big drinkers? Not to worry, I’ve taken care of you too by providing some of my favorite rum spiked goodies for you to enjoy!
Sailor Sundae Cupcakes – This one is the mother of all rum spiked goodness! Chocolate rum cake with a chocolate rum ganache filling, topped with rum buttercream frosting, and drizzled with a chocolate rum sauce and caramel rum sauce. My only regret was not soaking those cherries in rum too!
Boozy Brownies with Salted Caramel Rum Sauce – This is in the top five of my most popular recipes.. and for good reason! Fudgy rich brownies topped with a caramel rum sauce and sprinkled lightly with sea salt. It makes for the perfect sweet and salty treat!
Toasted Coconut and Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Rum – The most delicious banana bread I’ve made to date!
Rum Spiked Carrot Cake Doughnuts – A richly spiced cake doughnut topped with a rum spiked cream cheese frosting. The notes in Sailor Jerry Rum really bring out the flavor of the carrot cake!
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Rum Cake with Real Strawberry Frosting – Chocolate rum cake, fresh strawberry rum frosting, and strawberries dipped in a chocolate rum ganache! This made the perfect Blogiversary cake for me!
Sailor Spiked Bacon and Chocolate Chip Cookies – Rum. Bacon. Chocolate. Do I need to elaborate any further?
Rum Spiked Red Velvet Swirl Brownies – Okay.. clearly I love brownies. A slight variation on the salted caramel brownies above, a decadent red velvet and cream cheese mix to create that beautiful marbled look.
Pumpkin Spice Rum Balls – We’re quickly approaching Pumpkin Spice Season and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it then with these tasty no-bake balls of deliciousness! Yep.. you can quote that: BALLS of DELICIOUSNESS.
Sailor Berry Pie – The first pie I’ve ever made from scratch and I don’t think I’ll ever make a pie without rum again!
And because I’m so excited for Halloween this year….
REDRUM Cake with Boozy Cream Cheese Frosting – This was as much fun to create as it was to devour it! Red velvet rum cake with rum spiked cream cheese frosting, then topped with a strawberry sauce for a deliciously gory effect!
And just a friendly reminder.. alcohol never completely cooks out of food contrary to the old wive’s tale that it does. I’m sure your kiddo would be okay to enjoy one cupcake or doughnut, but use your best judgement and as always.. enjoy responsibly! 😉
